This was a fun one to color, and I did some experimenting with a screentone program I have, I'll probably use it more in the future. The background took some wrestling around with, I couldn't decide on the kind of hue I wanted, and decided on a greenish-grey, feeling it had the right balance of making Blades pop and not clashing with his colors too much. The retro "surprise flash" was something I wanted to try out for fun, any feedback on how you think it works with the overal look would be much appreciated! I also had fun coloring in little Dani in his hand, I had to figure out how to keep true to her outfit colors while also making her noticable (but she's so small I dunno if it worked XD; ).
You can find the black and white image (along with my ramblings of how I adore this character XD) here: [link]
Comments and questions are always appreciated, thanks for looking! ^_^
